Stampin for the Weekend - Week 9

Hello everyone, it's week 9 of our challenges over at Stampin for the Weekend and this weeks sponsor, Susie of Die Cut Dreams, Susie offering a lovely prize worth 20.00 of die cuts. Our theme this week is ALTERATIONS

This week's SFTW challenge is to take an item that you either have in your home or have bought to "alter in some form" by decorating it, ie a tin, jar, book, binder, box, clipboard, etc.

So here is a piccie of the washing up powder box and empty Yankie Candle Jar Before..

This is what they turned out like. I am now using the box for all the stamped images my lovely blogging buddies have sent me. The lil jar houses lots of flowers.

Here's some more boxes that I have covered. I bought a few rolls of wrapping paper a while back, which came in very handy.

My lovely teamies have come up with some very imaginative creations, so why not check out their blogs to see for yourself. Many thanks to Suzie for being our Guest Design Team member for these past two weeks, it has been a pleasure having her aboard, her creations are so wonderful, so thank you Suzie.

I think this is weeks SFTW theme going to be such a fun challenge, I can't wait to see what all you clever crafters will come up with.

I also want to say a humungous thank you to my amazing teamie Kimmi, who came to my rescue last night. My computer has crashed and I've lost, scrapbook downloads, digi downloads, the lot. So I was in a right pickle trying to schedule this post, cos I didn't have any photos, but the lovely Kimmi sent me these in an e-mail so I was able to pop some piccies on to show that I have done this weeks!! Thank you so very much Kimmi, your a lil gem...mwah....

***UPDATED *** My clever hubby came home from London yesterday evening and has managed to restore my computer to how it was, phew what a relief. I was in such a state of panic when my computer initially crashed, so well done come in handy now and!!!

have a lovely weekend all, ttfn xx vicki xx

Hi Vicki

Now isnt't that creative Vicki, using the old soap box and a jar and decorating them to fit in with your craft room, love the papers you've used, and all the
dividers inside the box is great Sometimes these boxes really come in handy for storage. Love it.
